Lean Six Sigma

The main factor for success in manufacturing and non-manufacturing companies

Lean Six Sigma is a management methodology that aims to increase quality, performance and customer satisfaction with lower costs. Its main focuses are the systematic elimination of waste from every process in the company and only keeping activities that are of value to the customer. Although Lean Six Sigma was created in Toyota, Motorola and GE, its methodology is commonly used in the service sector as well.
